IndieSeen Favorite: Kerry Washington

She’s like a friend in my head. So I could totally see myself having a shopping date with Kerry Washington. She’s just that kinda girl. You know the one who you can always rely on to be there if you just wanna go out and do some randomness? “Let’s go to the movies, let’s go shopping, let’s spy on that hottie that works at American Apparel”. She’s just that kinda girl who you can chill with. Oh yea, and she just so happens to be a pretty damn good actress. Luckily Kerry is not letting Hollywood sleep on her. It seems like this chick comes out with 2 or 3 movies every year. She’s a hardworking kinda gal.

She’s been in some really great movies too. I love it when Kerry goes the indie route because it seems like she’s at her best in films like United States Of Leland and The Dead Girl. If you ever need research on how to play a character that has been completely washed out by drug use…look at Kerry at her best in The Dead Girl. I mean she’s of course done well in blockbuster films like Ray and Last King Of Scotland. She just knows how to work it!

And man does she work it! She’s piping hot! And totally single for you fellas out there. I think she was involved with the little kid from the movie Big…remember that guy? Kerry Washington is our NY neighborhood friend with roots in The Bronx. She graduated from Spence School here which is a well known institution for Hollywood actors.

Kerry will be back in theaters on September 19th in a new riveting film starring Samuel L Jackson and Patrick Wilson called Lakeview Terrace. We already envy Kerry because she got to have hot steamy sexy time action with fine ass Patrick Wilson. All I gotta say is Patrick Wilson can totally get it. Nuff said right there. Anyways, the film is about An LAPD officer who will stop at nothing to force out the interracial couple who just moved in next door. The movie trailer looks hot too. Look for the scene with Wilson and Washington getting it on in the pool. You’ll find yourself need a cool glass of water afterwards.

Kerry, we love you for being a great actress and making us all feel like you could be our bestest friend! Keep it hot girl. You’re definitely an A-lister to us!!

Wanna see Kerry's latest film? Here's the trailer:
